Hi,

The best value for money spec, has to be a late '06 onwards Zetec climate....that is if you want all the bells and whistles.... otherwise any spec is well worth having...check for working/faulty climate control..can be dear to fix. Engine wise, the 1.4 petrol is quite frugal in itself, but the 1.4 diesel, is very economical if a little asthematic!...1.6 petrol ...can't really see the point unless you're a boy racer.... 1.6 diesel, I don't know enough about it to comment.

Essentially though, not bad little cars...a bit like a tardis....!...but best of all, the young 'uns don't like them much, so generally they are in fair condition, and rarely thrashed. good luck with your purchase.


hope this helps.

Good Luck
